Business Classification Recertification

Business Classification Recertification

The updated features outlined in this videos shows how the County can update their Business Classification Recertification and how vendors are notified of expiring certificates for Business Classification Recertification (as detailed within your iSupplier profile) based on the expiration date of the business classification certification. As in the past, vendors can also update their recertification via the iSupplier portal. Please note that the recertification feature is at supplier level not at business classification level. The current design allows the system to send notification to suppliers based on when they have last certified their classifications (note this is for all classifications ,not a separate notification for each classification).
